ASI-Preferra FAQ

ASI-Preferra

We were deeply disappointed to learn that you may have received correspondence from Preferra’s President, Dr. Richard Jones. NASW Assurance Services, Inc. (ASI) did not authorize this communication with our customers, and it is important that we correct misinformation within his letter.

If you had professional liability insurance through Preferra, you may have received a follow-up letter in June from Stacy Hammond, Interim CEO at ASI.

The policies of NASW members who have professional liability insurance with Preferra are valid and intact.

If you provide your standing proxy, you will be agreeing to have Preferra’s President, Richard Jones, vote on your behalf. As a policyholder, this is your choice to make, but in an election year like this one, we are reminded how important voting is. We encourage you to give this decision thoughtful consideration. Entrusting your vote to another person means relinquishing control over your own vote. We urge you to think carefully before giving anyone your proxy.

The ASI Board of Directors continues to be comprised of experienced social workers just like you, some of whom are Pioneers in our profession. They are uniquely qualified to understand social workers and their needs and are committed to meeting the interests of social workers.
